I worked at Pandora

Pros

- I love the product.
- It is easy to be proud of the company you work for.
- Your work has meaning and impacts the joy of hundreds of thousands of listeners.

Cons

- No support from management. I went to my manager on two seperate occassions letting him know my concerns about the hours, and how a lot of hours were wasted redoing work. He told me to suck it up and try to be more like the other guy (who had no problem doing 9am-2am days several times a week).
- Long hours - 60-70 hour weeks are average, 70+ in crunchtime.
- Pay is crummy - salary sounds ok on paper, until you realize they pay you on a 40 hour/week scale, but expect you to do at least 60-70 hours per week.

    I have been working at Pandora

    Pros

    The staff are lovely, as I was new, everyone helped me and guided me into the right direction. The discount you get when you finish you probation period is lush ������, like I just love everything, and selling is so easy once you get to grips with the process.

    Cons

    The pay could be increased slightly as it is purely sales.
